Final Steps in the South Carolina Bankruptcy Process
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Hearing
If you go the Chapter 13 route for declaring bankruptcy your attorney will schedule a hearing with the bankruptcy judge. The judge will either confirm or deny the plan for repayment. Once confirmed you start making your scheduled payments. When the terms of the plan have been fulfilled your debts are eliminated.
